Advancing Excellence in SNF!

The nurses in Humboldt General Hospital's Skilled Nursing Facility have embraced a campaign aimed at making Harmony Manor a better place to live, work, and visit. The "Advancing Excellence in America's Nursing Homes Campaign" supports quality improvement efforts in America's nursing homes by encouraging participating nursing homes to adopt two of nine quality improvement goals. Since we have a bunch of overachievers at Harmony Manor, though, our staff has adopted EIGHT of the nine goals! Let's give a big shout out to Diane Nevis, LPN (Hospitalizations); Mary Schlotzhauer, RN (Resident Centered Care); Lori Hotz, RN (Medications); Dawn Bryant, RN (Pain Management); Lorene Rushin-Hall, LPN (Infection Control); Jennifer McDonald, RN (Pressure Ulcers); Jennifer Fernandez, RN and Beverly Shell, LPN (Mobility); and Robin Gillis, RN (Staff Stability). On top of giving their all everyday on the job, these ladies are stepping it up to make sure Harmony just keeps improving. Kudos all the way around!
